The kitchen in this 1927 Wallingford home is tucked in the northeast corner of the house and felt small and cramped when the owners purchased the home. There was also an awkward connection from the kitchen to the backyard involving having to go up and down stairs. East facing french doors were added bringing in lots morning light and fresh air. The new deck adjacent to the kitchen created a seamless connection from the kitchen to the backyard. Floating douglas fir upper shelves were designed for the north wall flanking the existing kitchen window. All of the appliances were reused and remained in their respective locations in order to keep the project design on budget.
Also included in the project:
-A full remodel of the second floor master suite that included a new soaking tub, walk-in shower, and a custom double vanity in cherry.
-The existing porch was enclosed to create a mudroom entry providing storage area for coats, shoes, and kids backpacks prior to entering the living room.
-Removal of lathe and plaster walls, new insulation, new drywall and crown moulding.
-Complete electrical update.
